The electric super car, the Lightning GT

Lightening GT Shaping Up To Be Next Ferrari Of Electric Cars

The Lightening GT has been a long time coming and the incredible full-performance electric car, EV has never shied away from top performance.

If you ever wonder who will be the next Ferrari of electric cars, or Porsche, or whatever your exotic car inclination is, have a look at this amazing all-electric wonder. From as far back as 2009, the promise of this no-concession electric super car is a staunch reminder that the British still know how to develop and make unique cars. The Lightning GT promises to rival Ferrari, Porsche and other exotic makers in the new field of electric cars.

A Little History. The Lightning car company wanted to develop a very high performance car, which originally would have sported an internal combustion engine, ICE. As time went by, the company felt the electric drive held more of a promise and decided on a four in-hub electric motor configuration. Lightening has always been a staunch proponent of the electric drivetrain: “…the electric Lightning prototype is being hand-built by a small team of passionate British engineers, designers and collaborators. Whilst the rest of the automotive world engages in the hybrid, hydrogen or electric debate, the Lightning Car Company firmly believes its 100% Electric Lightning GTS will help kick start the market for performance EV’s.”
